to my online course Curriculum & Syllabus Design. It is a graduate
course in the Master's degree program of Teaching English as a Second
Language at Saint Michael's College. In this course you will learn how to
a curriculum and syllabus for their own ESL/EFL teaching environment.
Participants develop a curriculum portfolio project in several peer-reviewed
segments. They examine the purposes of curriculum and syllabus; survey
existing programs; evaluate various syllabus types; analyze the needs of
stakeholders, including the learners' needs; determine language proficiency
according to language standards; establish a mission, teaching philosophy,
and methodology that drive curricular goals; set objectives, requirements,
assessments for a syllabus; develop a multi-day unit plan, and set up a
testing and evaluation plan for their curriculum.
